Fairy has just about mentioned everything I was going to suggest.
loniciera winter beauty will grow quite large there too plus those scented flowers. also skimmias will enjoy it there. the dark leaved taxus, for a touch of formality or a pillar, too.
you are spoiled for herbaceous stuff too Lisa Girly. Aconitums will provide good height there
